|Markelle Fultz: Starting Tuesday|
Fultz will start Tuesday's contest against the Cavaliers, Dan Savage of the Magic's official site reports.
The Scoop: Fultz will draw his first start of the season with Cole Anthony (toe) sidelined. While the fifth-year point guard will operate as a starter, it's likely Orlando still keeps a close eye on his minutes, as they've been limiting him to around 20 minutes since he returned from a torn ACL at the end of February. Regardless, Fultz has still been productive and appears to be hitting his stride, as he's scored in double figures in five consecutive contests. During that stretch, he's averaged 13.8 points, 5.4 assists, 2.6 rebounds and 2.0 steals in 20.4 minutes.

|Markelle Fultz: Scores 11 with six dimes|
Fultz notched 11 points (4-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT), three rebounds and six assists in 22 minutes during Sunday's 118-88 loss to the Knicks.
The Scoop: While Cole Anthony (toe) exited the game early on and did not return, the Magic continue to be very careful with Fultz's workload since he returned from a torn ACL. In fact, his 22 minutes Sunday marked a new season high, as he's typically been capped in the 18-to-21-minute range. With only three games remaining, don't expect anything to change for Fultz, workload-wise. At this point, his focus is squarely on him beginning the 2022-23 campaign at full strength.

|Markelle Fultz: Season-best performance|
Fultz produced 19 points (7-14 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-6 FT), three rebounds, seven assists, two blocks and three steals across 21 minutes during Wednesday's 127-110 loss to the Wizards.
The Scoop: Fultz supplied a season-high 19 points, supplementing his scoring with strong facilitating and racking up multiple steals for the third straight game. Although 12 Magic players received double-digit minutes, Fultz trailed only Franz Wagner in scoring and shots taken. Fultz will look to carry his momentum into Friday's contest against the Raptors.

|Markelle Fultz: Playing Tuesday, sitting Wednesday|
Fultz will play in Tuesday's game against Golden State, but he'll be held out of Wednesday night's matchup against the Thunder, Dan Savage of OrlandoMagic.com reports.
The Scoop: Fultz recently returned from a torn ACL, so the Magic will continue to exercise caution with his workload as they play out the string on another rebuilding season. Through nine appearances off the bench, Fultz is averaging 8.9 points, 2.9 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 0.8 steals in 18.0 minutes per contest.
